Former Manchester United star Dion Dublin is convinced Paul Scholes would be welcomed back into the England fold with open arms.

Interim boss Stuart Pearce is set to unveil the Three Lions squad for this month's friendly with Holland on Thursday. Prior to Fabio Capello's shock departure, there had been some speculation that Scholes was again on the Italian's radar following his sensational retirement U-turn.

Dublin can see the merits of Scholes starring for his country again at the ripe old age of 37, and he said: "I can see that. I imagine if you took a poll of players, there wouldn't be many who didn't want Paul Scholes in their side. He defies age."
